The best places to order pet food and supplies online

Pet parents have been buying food for their pets online for years now, especially since the pandemic began. Whether you’re looking for a new, trendy toy for your dog, a new collar, a cat carrier or the cheapest pet food delivery option, these online pet stores can give you the selections you need.

Retailers are making it as simple as they can for us, offering an Autoship feature that allows you to sign up for recurring shipments of the same supplies each month, while services like Shipt and Instacart will deliver pet supplies along with your grocery order.

So if you’re wondering where to buy pet food online, we’ve rounded up some popular pet retailers. And as we are living in a day of supply chain issues, keep the following in mind: Don’t buy in bulk as this causes inventory to run out. But do place your orders before you need them so your pet won’t run out of their brand of food. This is where the Autoship will come in handy.

Here are a few of our favorite pet retailers who ship pet supplies directly to your door:


Chewy offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee on every item and order and provides free shipping on orders over $49. There are customer service representatives available to customers 24/7 via phone, chat, email or social media. They are currently offering 35% off your first AutoShip order. Chewy really is the perfect one-stop shop for your pet’s needs. They offer not only top pet food brands, but also toys, flea protection, dental treats, and vet-prescribed medications.

Petco offers a wide range of food, supplies, treats and toys for dogs, cats, birds, hamsters and more. Like Chewy, Petco also offers AutoShip deliveries with 35% off your first purchase – this is a good option for pet owners who don’t want to go to store every every month for supplies.
